DUBAI - Four Arab countries which cut ties with Qatar this week over its alleged support of terrorism on Friday designated dozens of people with alleged links to Qatar as terrorists, intensifying a row that threatens the region's stability.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain said in a statement published by the Saudi news agency that 59 people, including Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi, and 12 entities, among them Qatari-funded charities, were named.
